Catwoman Serena is back

Catwoman Serena is back”

"That's what Serena does to you", said Alicia Molik, the Australian Fed Cup captain, who was watching from Barty's player box.

"Every day is a great day for me, " said Williams, who is also entered in doubles, with her older sister, Venus.

Serena Williams of the USA celebrates winning her second round match against Australia's Ashleigh Barty.

It drew immediate comparisons to Paris's Moulin Rouge with the American insisting she was trying to "create an illusion".

The tennis champion is back in the game (literally) and is not alone! But two years ago, I met this man, nearly out of nowhere.

Serena chose this option which showed off her tight abs with a studded navel for good measure.

Two-time champion Sharapova survived a serious scare to claim a 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 victory over Dutch qualifier Richel Hogenkamp, ranked 130, in her first French Open match since 2015.

Whatever happens over the next two weeks, Williams insists her family priorities have eased the expectations on her as a player. But the bodysuit, as well as helping her deal with her blood clots issues, didn't look half bad either. The same continued into the first game of the second set, and Serena was quickly broke.

Gavrilova saved a match point in snatching a 5-7 7-5 6-3 victory from the jaws of defeat against American Bernarda Pera.

Then, out of nowhere, it was as if a switch had flipped.

Being a tennis-playing mother is also radically different from being a tennis-playing dad on the tour.

Specifically, vintage Serena emerged in the second game of the second set of her second-round French Open match against Australia's 17th-seeded Ashleigh Barty.

The rest of the match was totally one-sided, as the 16-time Grand Slam champion finished with 37 winners against an outclassed opponent. Barty put up a stiff challenge, and really forced Serena out of her comfort zone with a mix of slices and topspin shots. Williams was not as consistent as in the past, but that's somewhat to be expected.

Wimbledon and Australian Open runner-up Cilic, 29, fired 47 winners and 13 aces past the 1,072nd-ranked Duckworth who was playing his first match since the 2017 Australian Open. "I think people need to talk about it more because it's nearly like the fourth trimester, it's part of the pregnancy", she says. "Serena makes you probably go for that extra 1 percent that you normally might not need to try to execute, and sometimes that's just enough to force you to miss". It's hard to say.

Despite exercising before her return, Williams weighed 93.1 kg (205 lb). It's impossible to know quite what level her fitness is at, either, because she hasn't had to play two weeks of competitive tennis in nearly 18 months.

But things have since taken a positive turn for Williams, who was one of the star guests at the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
